More info about this farm

Coffee Leaf Rust (fungas: Hemileia vastatrix), made more vigorous by warmer temperatures, destroyed a large percentage of Evangelina Matute's coffee trees that were already stressed by abnormally dry conditions in Honduras. She responded heroically (only her family's livelihood was at stake) by starting her own nursery to systematically replace damaged and stressed coffee trees, while increasing the number of shade trees (we really like that part) on her farm. With help from her cooperative (RAOS:  Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra), she invested in new eco-friendly demucliager (a machine that pulps the skin off coffee cherry) to reduce her farm's dependence on fresh water.

Evanglina's Red Honey process is careful ripe cherry selection from trees mainly 3-5 years old, then pulped with her demucliager tuned to remove the skin and part of the underlying fruit.  The parchment (a paper like membrane that surrounds the two coffee seeds inside the cherry) covered by the remaining fruit is immediately moved to raised screens to dry in the sun.  Dry milling is done at RAOS where two electronic eyes running in series color sort the green beans before a final hand sorting to prepare the beans for export.
